The Mutants Capture a Perfectly Expendable Weekend

Last weekend proved to be quit kid friendly, with 80’s icons and galaxy guardians garnering the most press. Wondering what this weekend cinematically brought to the movie table?
“The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” continued to kick butt, maintaining their top spot at the domestic box office for their second week from the butt-kicking neighborhood of #1 with $28.4 million. “The Guardians of the Galaxy” happily guarded their family-friendly audience once again from the galaxy known as #2 with $24.7 million. Inspired by all the pretense, the boys shouting “Let’s Be Cops” landed at the crime-free corner of #3 with $17.7 million. Within our sequel-loving movie nation, “The Expendables 3” was welcomed back to that larger-than-life universe from the less desirable #4 place with $16.2 million. “The Giver” of goodness and golden life lessons was dispensing advice at the #5 area with $12.8 million.
So what did we learn this weekend at the movies? We discovered action stars may age but they never completely go out of style, the 80’s will never truly die, misfits are mighty, pretend cops are cool and sadly, there is no such thing as a perfect existential existence (only ideal moments captured on that picture perfect big screen).
What movie contributed to a perfect weekend for you?
